Citizens! Behold one of the great performance-based political commentators for our time; Beyoncé. Art imitates life (and politics) and Beyoncé fearlessly uses her star-powered performances to shed light on the most pressing Constitutional and cultural issues of our time!
Do not lament Beyoncé’s National Anthem lip-synching at the Inauguration! For it was a poetic coded parody on the hollow show that is the Federal Government’s feigned deference to the Constitution.
Brave-Beyoncé’s fake performance foreshadowed President Obama’s pseudo oath to the Constitution. She called out the President’s anti-Constitutionalism before his adoring crowds and cohorts; all with only a microphone, allure, and a pre-recorded track!
What JOY! Beyoncé’s mock performance proclaimed to Obama, his predecessor, and all the complicit politicians who don’t really have a copy of the Constitution ”in their back pocket”:
“WE KNOW your oath is an untruth; we do NOT support the continued extension of the 4th Amendment-shredding Patriot Act, the domestic use of drones, indefinite military detention or the militarization of the civilian police; STOP the targeted assassinations of U.S. citizens and your undeclared wars; STOP your persecution of medical marijuana patients, bailouts for the mega-banks, and the “too big to prosecute” policy that establishes two classes of citizens before the law; we KNOW the Federal Reserve causes domestic and international economic instability; we do NOT want to subvert our Constitutional Republic to international governmental organizations, and we most certainly do NOT support your plan to shred the 2nd Amendment in light of this advancing leviathan.”
Ahhh…the all-encompassing power of art! Brave-Beyoncé would not honor Obama’s past and foreseen degradation of the Constitution with authenticity. “All you get is a performance as phony as your illusory oath.” You go, Beyoncé!
But, was she done? NO! Nary two weeks later the great political satirist attacked the superficiality of American “bread and circus;” the distracting veil for the sham-oath politicians Beyoncé lampooned at the Inauguration. And she did it on the biggest of world stages; the Super Bowl Halftime Show!
Didn’t you get her message? All the superficial pizzazz, sex, fireworks and junior-varsity music appeared a shallow production without heart or soul. But, read through the lines and you realize it was all Beyoncé-code for her principled declaration; “America, you want to be distracted and shirk your citizen-duty to hold your politicians accountable to the Constitution? Well, this is the gruel you deserve!” If you felt like ripping your hair out that was just Beyoncé subliminally shattering your worldview. Oh subtle brilliance!
That the lights went out on the Super Bowl soon after her performance was a poignant message from above; that liberty may soon extinguish if we don’t wake up, hold our leaders accountable and be the American Renaissance. Was Beyoncé behind this final nightfall message to millions of Americans? We’ll never know. Yet, there is little coincidence that within 24 hours, the Obama Administration came clean and finally released the internal memo purporting to justify its (unconstitutional) targeted assassination policy against American citizens. You go, Beyoncé!
